Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2011

My wife and I had the pleasure of getting married in Kaprun and stayed with 50 guests at the Sportkristall. It was absolutely amazing and better than we had hoped. The staff and in particular Karin our wedding planner went above and beyond to ensure the wedding day and the whole week went smoothly. The facilities are first class, and the food is amazing. I agree the smoke in the bar was the only negative factor I can think of. Our wedding was at Kaprun castle which is an amazing setting.

We can't wait to return for the anniversary!

Overall we enjoyed the hotel and in particular the staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately for us the stay was spoiled by the constant and unpleasant presence of cigarette smoke in the bar and other public areas. Since none of our party were smokers this meant that we were exposed to health risk mostly from staff smoking. It is surprising that Austria has not yet banned such exposure to passive smoking

Room Tip: Lovely hotel, friendly staff, very hot and smoky.

This hotel would be perfect if only they banned smoking. The first and lasting memory is of the strong smell of smoke throughout the bar, lounge, hallways and my room.

The reception and bar are very chalet style with wood clad walls and an open fire - very homely. My room was on the first floor with a beautiful view of the snow capped mountains. The room was clean, slightly dated and afflicted by wafting smoke from downstairs.

The staff were excellent in every way. Reception were very helpful, bar staff efficient yet unobtrusive and the restaurant staff great.

Of the 7 days dinner was great on 6 nights more than making up for the not so good night.

Breakfast was plentiful and again the staff accommodating.

The glacier is just a short free bus ride away and town a 5 minute walk. The ski hire shop recommended by the hotel even drop off and pick up your gear which was a relief.

I would definitely recommend this hotel but request a room not on the 1st floor to avoid the smoke from the bar or even better ban smoking indoors!

We chose to have our wedding and honeymoon in Kaprun in March of 2011. We decided to arrive a week before the wedding so we could spend some time relaxing with our guests before the big day, and stayed a week after the wedding to have a proper honeymoon, just the two of us. What an incredible place! As we wanted to do quite a bit of skiing, it was ideal to be in Kaprun as the Kitzsteinhorn glacier has plenty of good snow, even so late in the season. The hotel was in the perfect location - second stop on the bus route, so you are guarenteed to get a seat for the 15 minute journey to the bottom of the mountain. Our wedding took place in the castle (which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel) and was so beautiful. Even though it rained that day, we ended up with gorgeous pictures! And the food throughout our stay was superb! Oh, I highly recommend the house red wine - it's gorgeous and goes well with everything! The skiiers snack from 4-5 is a great perk as well, and much needed after a great day of skiing.

If you're looking for a truly wonderful holiday destination and wedding location, this is the place!

We travelled to the beautiful village of Kaprun for our wedding with 36 guests. From the very moment we arrived at the hotel Karin and the team could not do enough to welcome us to Austria (including a complimentary schnaps!!) The hotel is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The rooms were perfect and all our guests had only good things to say about facilities and top quality food and service. The wedding day was the best day of our lives, everything was taken care of by Karin and the team, so all our stresses were taken away. We were married in the beautiful castle in Kaprun, the most romantic and picturesque location we have ever been to. The reception in the hotel was fantastic and all our guests commented on how delicious the wedding meal and cake were. In summary I would recommend this hotel for your wedding, or holiday. The professional staff and fantastic location mean you will not be disapointed. Thank you Karin for all your hard work.

We travelled to Kaprun for the wedding of our very good friends. Everything was just brilliant from the minute we got there. we were welcomed into the family hotel, and felt right at home and part of the family.
This has got to be the best hotel in regards to food, "compliments to the chef", it was the best variation and the food was a treat every night.
could not fault the staff at all, very happy and helpful team.
the wedding was just brilliant, it was better than any wedding here in the UK.
Thank you for making the wedding for our friends so magical and giving us a truly memorable holiday that we will be talking about for many years.
I do hope we are able to return at some point.
